About the Book

Serving Up God was born out of a revelation that God was indeed doing powerful ministry right in the middle of the everyday hustle and bustle of my humble workplace. The realization that others struggled to accept the validity of God’s work in their secular work lives proved the necessity of a story-style documentation of that work.

The simple concept of God’s desire to use every part of our lives—not just on Sundays—is laid out in a series of compelling stories and personal moments. Each relatable story reinforces this revolutionary yet Biblical idea that we are called to do God’s work in every place.

What if we stop compartmentalizing our lives into secular and spiritual and just let God show up wherever he chose? What if Jesus’s command to go into the world and preach the gospel includes the place we spend most of our week? It’s a pretty safe bet that God intends us to live out the teachings of the New Testament in our workplaces and neighborhoods.
